  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. I have known Scott for nearly a decade now and Scott is incredibly smart about the law and lemon law issues and knows how to handle California Lemon law cases and, more importantly, he cares about his clients and he hates losing - and those are exactly the attributes every consumer wants in their lawyer. If you have a lemon vehicle and you are anywhere near his office, I highly recommend you call him for help. I gladly endorse him.
